Product Description

Experience a gripping ‘pilgrimage’ through the Philippines' diverse landscapes and its people's struggles in Quintin Jose V. Pastrana’s powerful short story collection, Infieles. These thought-provoking stories delve deep into the hearts and minds of a range of characters, from alienated Overseas Filipino Workers to witnesses of extra-judicial killings. Pastrana’s wry and postcolonial portrayal of these complex individuals transcends mere dialogue, immersing readers in a tapestry of dreams, nostalgia, and subterfuge. As he turns Philippine history on its head, the author reveals the erasure of true stories and personal histories that has led the country to its current state. Loneliness, grief, isolation, and struggle find their voice within these pages, offering a distinctly Filipino exploration of dispossession. With vivid descriptions and a keen understanding of the Filipino experience, Pastrana weaves a compelling narrative that resonates with readers far beyond the archipelago’s shores.
